    I like the size and look. Not enough outlets for proper airflow it seems. Thanks for the review!

    if it had side air vents, it could become the perfect mid range case !

    I have the pure base 600 and I can say that the airflow is not enough. I have to make holes in the sides of the front so that the air enters better.
    They should leave more room for the air to enter or put a 14cm fan at the bottom.

    Nice looking case, but yeah, the air flow needs improvement.

    Iv got the Pure Base 600 Orange, fricking best case iv had in a long time

    Iv no issues with airflow at all, even use the bequiet dark rock pro 4 with 2 fans for my 8700k cpu, i added an extra bequiet fan to the top of the case too, overall the case keeps everything really cool and everything is quiet when gaming

    I have two front fans (14cm ) and one back.
    With the front panel removed, the temperature drops from 6 / 8 degrees.
